    Hello! What are some ideas for an adult who will have some solo time during their trip at Disney World?

    Hello Kristen, and thanks for stopping by planDisney! 

    Ah, alone time at Disney...Legend has it, only the most fortunate souls ever have the luxury of being in control of their own destiny. Haha! I LOVE having solo time when I'm at Walt Disney World Resort because it truly does open the door to countless options!

    On my last visit, the group I was with all had Park Reservations to Magic Kingdom Park, but when I went to make the same there were none left! At first, it was a bit of a letdown, but I realized that EPCOT still had availability, and snagged a reservation. I decided to take the scenic route to the park by making my way to Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    "But Andrew, you just said you had a Park Reservation to EPCOT, why didn't go to...EPCOT?"

    Two words: Disney Skyliner! Whether you plan on spending time in the parks solo or not, a relaxing ride on the newest Guest Transportation option is almost an attraction in itself! I like to hop off at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort and grab something from the Joffrey's Coffee & Tea Company kiosk before boarding the EPCOT line! 

    This leg of the Skyliner also makes an omnimover-type stop at Disney's Riviera Resort! You can hop off here and see one of the newest resorts on property, including the beautiful mosaics! Staying on board keeps you "en route," as the French say, to the International Gateway station, where you'll get a birds-eye view of the expanded France Pavilion! 

    If you've made a park reservation for EPCOT the world is your oyster...World Showcase, that is! I like to pop into all the shops of the Pavilions and look at what's available - without my family asking for what THEY want, haha! Plus, you can join the Virtual Queue for Remy's Ratatouille Adventure once you're in the park.

    But probably my top suggestion if you're up for an out-of-this-world dining experience, would be to head over to the new Space 220. This is an INCREDIBLE experience that typically requires a very difficult-to-get dining reservation - but as a solo traveler, try your luck at asking a Cast Member if there is any "space" available at the bar - availability varies and isn't guaranteed, but there's often a spot on the Space Elevator for parties of one. 

    If you don't have a park ticket, when you arrive at the International Gateway, you're just a short walk away from Disney's BoardWalk - a picturesque place to relax and spend some time transported back to the heyday of East coast summers. 

    Oh, and I almost forgot all the exciting shops and eateries available at Disney Springs OR a relaxing boat ride on the Friendship Boats - as a Disney Cruise Line specialist, I'll always suggest a boat ride!

    Whew! I'm tired just thinking about all there is to do solo, but hopefully that gives you some great ideas!

    Thank you so much for your question, Kristen, and I hope you have a magical time on your trip! If you'd like more suggestions or have additional questions, you know where to find us here at planDisney! 

    TTFN, Ta Ta For Now!
